Steven Mamet

Postdoctoral Fellow, University of Saskatchewan
I focus my research on range limits of tree species at northern tree lines, and how climate and environmental change shape tree line dynamics. I thoroughly enjoy the outdoors and wearing plaid—boreal fieldwork allows me to indulge both my passions.
